Some Animals [Algunos Animales]


All around me people calling my name
Everybody knows that fame’s the name of the game
I was a clean slate waiting to be written upon
I was looking for the good time
Now it ain’t so much fun

I had an iron fist hidden in a soft leather glove
Was the darling of the critics
Now there ain’t so much love
When you claw your way up
There ain’t no going back
Not for me at least baby
‘less it’s in a body bag, you see

Orwell was wrong there’s none more equal than me
I am the ultimate predator
The shark in the sea

I was slowly sinking
Into the thoughts that I’d been thinking
I was slowly drowning
Everyone around me could surely see

Some animals are more equal than others…

I am not an animal
